Paradise Lost formed in Halifax, England, in the late 80’s and is one of the Peaceville Three, along with Anathema and My Dying Bride, who all formed a much darker take to doom metal in the early 90s while all signed to Peaceville Records. In fact it was Paradise Lost’s sophomore album, Gothic, that the genre of gothic metal gets its name from. They’ve influenced countless bands yet somehow Paradise Lost, who still features all their original members aside from the drummer, manage to put out solid material. This isn’t an old band that just plays their old classics, they still put out solid material, including their 2017 album Medusa, which was #1 on Decibel Magazine’s top 40 albums of 2017. In addition to the rare chance to see Paradise Lost in the US the tour has some excellent support acts. Sólstafir from Iceland blends post rock with viking metal, adds a pinch of country western and a heavy dose of melancholy. The opening band is The Atlas Moth, a post metal band from Chicago that has been getting better and better with every album. Now check out these videos of the bands below and leave a comment letting me know what your favorite metal band to listen to in the Autumn is.

Paradise Lost – Blood And Chaos

Sólstafir – Silfur-Refur

The Atlas Moth – Holes In The Desert


  1. The best band to listen to in autumn is Katatonia and their album Brave Murder Day is the best album for it.

  2. Type O of course!

  3. I gotta go with My Dying Bride, my favorite gothic anything.

  4. Katatonia!

  5. Black Sabbath of course! 😁

  6. Finntroll!

  7. Eluveitie and Minsk

  8. Alcest!!!

  9. Agalloch. Whether sauntering through the dying woods or cozying up by the fire with a fall beer, a copy of “Pale Folklore” dramatically enhances the experience.

  10. Coldworld :)

  11. I definitely jive with the aforementioned Katatonia and My Dying Bride. Going to throw Anathema’s name out there–particularly The Crestfallen EP.

  12. Black Sabbath

  13. Perfect time of year to revisit Type O Negative

  14. Gotta go with Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats

  15. Type O Negative is even more perfect in the fall. I can do early Paradise Lost any time though.

  16. Shining

  17. Ugh, such a tough choice! I’m going to go with My Dying Bride and Moonspell before I get myself carried away. lol

  18. Black Sabbath is always my # 1 Doom choice. Or Wretched or Unorthodox. For more commercial bands Type O is the darkest.

  19. Amon Amarth

  20. Sentenced!

  21. Something about Sentenced always feels extra good during autumn/winter

  22. Cannibal Corpse.
